National Food Freedom Rally, November 23
As part of a nation-wide movement, there will be food freedom rallies in Saskatoon and Regina at 12 noon on November 23. The events are tentatively scheduled for the front of Saskatoon City Hall and the Saskatchewan Legislature. It is currently illegal to sell raw milk; many people disagree and want the right to choose the food they eat.

Salayview Farm Goat Cheese, December 1
Don’t miss the opportunity to purchase locally-made goat cheese from Salayview Farm. Salayview Farm is a small goat cheese producer located south of Regina. They make three kinds of soft, unaged chèvre: Plain, Chive, and Herbes de Provence.
The cheese is not yet available on a regular basis in Saskatoon, but they will be making a trip to Saskatoon on December 1 and will be delivering cheese to a pick-up location.
If you live in Saskatoon and would like to purchase some of their cheese on December 1, contact me or email Salayview Farm with your order. I’ll keep you posted as to the pick-up location and time.
The Hollows Restaurant
The Hollows restaurant will be opening shortly in the Golden Dragon building in Riversdale neighbourhood. The two young chefs plan to serve contemporary food focused on natural and seasonal products.
Their food will be made with the best ingredients they can find in our area: cultivated plants grown from heirloom seeds, wild-harvested leaves and mushrooms, flowers, sap and roots, local fish, sustainably raised, pastured meat, poultry and eggs from small farmers.
You can like their Facebook page or follow them on Twitter (@thehollowsltd).
